An Artfull Mothers Day 2009: Studio City

An artfull Mothers Day

STUDIO CITY – Mother’s Day traditionally involves dining out, bouquets of flowers and boxes of chocolates.
But for many San Fernando Valley moms, the holiday tradition always includes a treasured family visit to the annual Mother’s Day Arts and Craft Fair in Moorpark Park. Presented by the Rotary Club of Studio City and Sherman Oaks, the 40th annual event at the corner of Moorpark Street and Laurel Canyon Boulevard drew hundreds out Sunday for a day in the tree-lined park to shop at 140 booths selling dozens of handmade goods from soy candles to sun hats. “It’s a tradition to come here. People bring their moms and walk around the park,” said Katie Berlow of Valley Village, who meandered around the event with her husband, Mitch, and their two daughters, Harley and Vivien. “You see people from the community. It’s cool.” For years, Katie Berlow has stood at a booth selling her handmade necklaces and earrings at the show. Now pregnant with her third child, the Valley Village mother decided to skip the booth this year. Still, she couldn’t resist attending the event with her family. A few aisles down, Kathy Davis, of Shadow Hills, strolled through the craft show with her mother, Sandy Collins of Reseda. Sunday marked the third time the mother-and-daughter team included a special trip to the fair in their Mother’s Day plans. They were looking forward to snapping up hand-painted pottery, garden stakes and butterfly glass designs
“We’ll come here, hang out and buy some arts and crafts,” said Kathy Davis, wearing her Mother’s Day gift – a blue-beaded necklace from her son, Trent, 9. “We’re going to lunch, too.”
